Jonas Alaska - My Heart Was Leaving Me

TUESDAY BLUES

Do you like Singer/Songwriters/Alt-Country/Americana or Indie-Folk, or do you have a unhealthy affection to the sadness, if so you may have a case of the Tuesday Blues!




Jonas Alaska - My Heart Was Leaving Me (2016)

I love it when you (or should that be 'I') get bowled over by a simple song. My Heart was Leaving Me is by Norwegian singer/songwriter Jonas Alaska.  It is a gorgeous track that has managed to lodge itself into my random listening playlist over the last few weeks.  Reading the lyrics has given me a few nervous laughs and I wish I could give my younger self a little bit of advice about heartbreak. I would have said, "It will give you the best playlists ever! Pull yourself together and get out there!!"

Taken from the Album Younger


I had a friend so sweet to me 
everything she did was fun 
And in her eyes it was clear to see 
she’s more true than anyone 

I broke her down 
thought I had my reasons 
I left her in a hole 
I made her say please when 

She never meant to hurt me 
didn’t take long to see 
that when I was busy leaving 
my heart was leaving me 

I’d never felt a thing before 
I was worn out the whole way through 
I saw her standing on the kitchen floor 
right then and there I knew 

That I was going down going under 
Inside my head was lightning and thunder 

She never meant to hurt me 
didn’t take long to see 
that when I was busy leaving 
my heart was leaving me 

Almost funny to me now 
I had so much to do 
All the words and lines I was writing 
Never meant a thing without you 

What’s done is done, it’s over now 
I’m shaken up and all alone 
I wish I knew but I don’t know how 
To turn my heart into a stone 

With a dull nail clipper I’m cutting the grass 
just trying to kill time but the hours won’t pass ‘cus 

She never meant to hurt me 
didn’t take long to see 
that when I was busy leaving 
my heart was leaving me 
my heart was leaving me

Nice little ditty. Know what you mean about making cracking playlists and the extra significance of tracks like 'No Regrets' and more recently for me 'Hope She'll be Happier'.

Did you mean 'I wish I could give my younger self'?

Time to get the nailclippers out. Time to cut the grass on the Millennium Stadium.
